SPORTING KANSAS CITY Sporting Kansas City saw their three-game winning streak come to an end on the back side of their coast-to-coast road trip, falling 2-0 to the LA Galaxy on Saturday evening at The Home Depot Center. Sporting remain in the lead of the Eastern Conference with 14 points from 8 matches. LAST MATCH

The Galaxy opened the scoring and ended SKC's long shutout streak in the 27th minute. Marcelo Sarvas won a loose ball in midfield and fed Landon Donovan for an open run down the left channel. Donovan took the ball into the box, eluded Aurélien Collin and slotted it into the middle, where Sarvas tapped it home.

The Galaxy struck again on the counter in the 74th minute. Sarvas fed Robbie Keane a through ball from Galaxy territory, sending him all alone in behind the Sporting backline. He took the ball to the box and played it to the right for Donovan, who fired into an empty net.

Sporting manager Peter Vermes kept the same team for a fourth consecutive match, keeping the group that came away from Red Bull Arena with a 1-0 victory against the New York Red Bulls.

SPORTING KANSAS CITY (4-1-2-3): Jimmy Nielsen - Chance Myers, Aurelien Collin, Matt Besler, Seth Sinovic - Oriol Rosell (Peterson Joseph 46) - Paulo Nagamura, Benny Feilhaber (Bobby Convey 76) - Graham Zusi, Claudio Bieler, C.J. Sapong (Soony Saad 67).

TEAM NEWS Sporting lost for the first time since March 9, ending a three-game winning streak and five-game undefeated

run,on in the back end of their bicoastal road trip after a midweek victory in New York. “Obviously the fatigue and the goal opened us up a little bit more. The second goal doesn’t really doesn’t mean

anything at the end of the day based on the fact that we were trying to push forward to get back in the game at that point,” said SKC manager Peter Vermes. “It’s a tough road trip the way we had to travel.”

SKC saw their shutout streak come to an end after 546 minutes, the fifth-longest streak in MLS history. They had previously been scored upon March 9 in a 2-1 loss at Toronto FC, also their last loss.

“I really don’t care personally about the shutout streak. All I care is that if we have a clean sheet at the end of the game, we scored one or two, then obviously we get the points,” Vermes said.

MLS GAME INFORMATION

Sporting goalkeeper Jimmy Nielsen faced a season-high five shots on target in the Galaxy loss (matching the total he saw in the season-opening 3-1 win vs. Philadelphia).

“It’s disappointing the way we performed, that’s what’s disappointing,” said Nielsen. “Not the shutout [streak ending]. Big games like this, you just don’t play bad like we did today. Right now I’m extremely disappointed and sad that we couldn’t perform better on a fantastic night like this, full stadium, two big teams.”

After a five-match absence from action, Bobby Convey made his first appearance since March 9, coming on as a 76th-minute substitute for Benny Feilhaber.

Peterson Joseph saw his longest shift of the season, coming on at halftime in place of Oriol Rosell. He had made five appearances totaling 65 minutes before the LA match.

“Do you want all of your players available all season? Sure,” Vermes said. “But we knew coming into this year that wasn't going to be the case. But we're in a good place on the table at the moment, and that's the point of all this – trying to keep yourself in a good position, in a good striking distance for everything.”

PORTLAND TIMBERS The Portland Timbers saw their winning streak end but still extended their undefeated run to five games, gaining a 1-1 draw with the San Jose Earthquakes on Sunday evening at Buck Shaw Stadium. The Timbers are in a tie for fourth place in the Western Conference with 10 points from 7 matches. TEAM NEWS

The Timbers took the lead in the 58th minute when Diego Valeri pounced on a deflected shot by teammate Ryan Johnson and pounded home a bouncing ball from 12 yards out.

But the Earthquakes once again showed their remarkable late magic. A long restart from goalkeeper Jon Busch was flicked on and bounded around the box before Chris Wondolowski gave a subtle touch to tee things up for rookie Adam Jahn, who went to his left to beat goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts cleanly.

Timbers head coach Caleb Porter made one change to the team that recorded a 1-0 win against San Jose at Jeld-Wen Field. Diego Valeri came back into the team in place of Kalif Alhassan.

PORTLAND TIMBERS (4-2-3-1): Donovan Ricketts - Jack Jewsbury, Mikael Silvestre, Mamadou Danso, Michael Harrington - Diego Chara, Will Johnson - Darlington Nagbe (Ben Zemanski 86), Diego Valeri (Kalif Alhassan 76), Rodney Wallace - Ryan Johnson (Frederic Piquionne 78).

TEAM NEWS The Timbers equaled their MLS club record by extending their undefeated streak to five games (2-0-3). The

club’s two-game winning streak came to an end in the back half of the home-and-home with San Jose. “We knew it would be really difficult to go into San Jose and get another win, knowing how motivated they

would be, knowing how they play and knowing that they’re a good team and good at home,” Timbers head coach Caleb Porter said. “In the end, the perspective is positive that we get a point, but we were a minute away from getting three points. So when you’re so close, it makes it a little tougher.”

The Timbers are also still undefeated on their travels, with draws from trips to Seattle, Colorado and San Jose. A year ago, Portland was 1-12-5 away from Jeld-Wen Field; they did not record their third road point until a tie in Toronto on Aug. 15.

“What’s even more impressive is we’re not happy with the draws,” Porter said. “That means that you genuinely have belief in your group. These guys, no matter if we’re home or away or who we’re playing, they believe we can get a result.”

The Timbers were beaten for a goal for the first time in 312 minutes with the Earthquakes’ late equalizer, the second-longest shutout streak in MLS this season (behing Sporting KC’s 546-minute streak, ended the night before). The 312-minute streak is third-longest in the club’s MLS history.

“Caleb knows how to lead his team. He has come in here and treated us greatly and knows how to put together a winning team,” said goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts. “Being with him has really gotten me to improve on my skills and to be the better player I always strived to be.”

Diego Valeri was able to return to the lineup after missing a game with a concussion suffered vs. Houston on April 6. He netted his second goal of the season, after scoring Portland’s first goal of the year in the 3-3 draw with New York.

“These guys have shown all year long that it’s about the team. You take one guy out, next guy in, nothing changes,” said Porter. “We have a system that we play. Everybody knows their role, and it’s not just the first XI. It’s the next XI. Every single day we’re preparing everybody on this team to be able to plug right in our system.”

Mamadou “Futty” Danso started for a second match in central defense alongside Mikael Silvestre, again replacing Andrew Jean-Baptiste, who was a late scratch from the first San Jose game with a hip injury. “I like to build off past games, and if Futty is healthy it’s going to be hard to take him out of the lineup,” said Porter.

CATEGORICAL WON-LOST-TIED HEAD COACH CALEB PORTEROne of the most successful coaches in NCAA history, Caleb Porter was named the Timbers head coach on Aug. 29, 2012, and joins the club following seven seasons as the head coach at the University of Akron from 2006-12. He finished his time at Akron with a career mark of 123-18-17 and owned the highest winning percentage (0.832) among all active Division I coaches. Porter has helped lead the Timbers to a positive result in six of the team’s first seven matches of the 2013 MLS season, in-cluding his first win as an MLS head coach - an impressive 2-0 victory against the Houston Dynamo on April 6 which earned him MLSsoccer.com Coach of the Week honors for Week 6.

Porter built Akron men’s soccer into a perennial national championship contender, leading the Zips to five consecutive trips to the NCAA tournament’s Round of 16 (2008-12), back-to-back NCAA College Cup appearances in 2009 and 2010, and the school’s first national title in any sport in 2010. In all, he guided Akron to seven Mid-American Conference (MAC) regular-season championships and five MAC Tourna-ment titles. Porter set multiple NCAA records at Akron, including a 48-match, home unbeaten streak (44-0-4) from 2008-11 and a 47-match unbeaten streak (44-0-3) in conference play from 2006-12.

From Kalamazoo, Mich., Porter garnered numerous honors while at Akron, including NSCAA National Coach of the Year in 2009. He was a three-time NSCAA All-Ohio Coach of the Year (2008-09, 2011) and received MAC Coach of the Year honors six straight years from 2007-12. Porter became the fastest coach in program history to reach 100 career wins, accomplishing the feat in just 126 matches. He is also among the fastest all-time in NCAA history to the century mark, reaching the milestone in fewer games than collegiate Hall of Fame and current MLS coaches Bruce Arena (140; Virginia) and Sigi Schmid (136; UCLA). While at Akron, Porter recruited and developed more than a dozen Zips players who have gone on to professional careers, many plying their trade in Major League Soccer. He had an MLS-record five former players selected in the first round of the 2011 MLS SuperDraft and seven selected overall that year. Under Porter’s guidance, Portland’s Darlington Nagbe and former Akron standout Teal Bunbury were recipients of the MAC Hermann Trophy, awarded to the nation’s top col-legiate player.

Porter also served as the head coach of the U.S. U-23 Men’s National Team during 2012 CONCACAF Olympic qualifying and spent three years as an assistant coach on the U.S. U-18 National Team from 2009-11. Prior to joining Akron, Porter was an assistant coach for six years (2000-05) at Indiana Univer-sity, helping the school make six NCAA tournament appearances, win back-to-back national champion-ships in 2003 and 2004 and claim five Big Ten Conference titles.

As a player, Porter was the 27th overall pick by the San Jose Clash in the 1998 MLS College Draft. He spent time with San Jose and the Tampa Bay Mutiny before a knee injury ended his playing career in 2000. Porter also played for the U.S. National B Team from 1996-97, winning a bronze medal at the 1997 World University Games.

He had a successful collegiate playing career at Indiana, where he was a three-year captain, a three-time All-Big Ten honoree and a four-year letter winner. Porter led the Hoosiers to four conference titles, four NCAA tournament appearances – twice advancing to the College Cup. As a senior, Porter captained IU to 23 consecutive wins before losing to eventual national champion UCLA in the national semifinals and was the runner-up for the 1997 Hermann Trophy.

Porter graduated from Indiana in 1998 with a degree in sports management. He and his wife, Andrea, have three children – two sons, Colin and Jake, and a daughter, Stella Jane.

PORTLAND TIMBERS AT SPORTING KANSAS CITYSATURDAY, APRIL 27, 2013

MATCH DAY PREVIEWThe Timbers visit Sporting Kansas City for the second time in the team’s MLS history on Saturday. The last time Portland traveled to Sporting Park for a match was on Aug. 17, 2011, when Sporting KC midfielder Graham Zusi scored a first-half brace en route to a 3-1 win. Timbers forward Bright Dike recorded his first career MLS goal in the 81st minute off assists from Rodney Wallace and Jack Jewsbury.

Portland is in the midst of a five-game unbeaten run, which ties the club’s record for longest undefeated stretch set Aug. 20-Sept. 21, 2011, and ranks as the league’s second-longest unbeaten streak this season. The Timbers also equaled their record mark of unbeaten games on the road, tallying their fourth straight unbeaten road match on April 21 against San Jose.

Eastern Conference-leading Sporting KC earned a league-best, 546-minute shutout streak that ended in a 2-0 loss to the LA Galaxy on April 20. Forward Claudio Bieler leads SKC with four goals.

PORTLAND TIMBERS AT SPORTING KANSAS CITYSATURDAY, APRIL 27, 2013

ALL-TIME SERIES NOTES

Saturday’s match marks the fourth meeting all-time between the Timbers and Sporting Kansas City. The Midwest club has visited JELD-WEN Field twice, tak-ing away a 2-1 win on July 2, 2011, in a game that featured Timbers midfielder/forward Darlington Nagbe’s spectacular 2011 MLS AT&T Goal of the Year.

Sporting KC traveled to Portland once again last season on April 21, 2012. An own goal from defender Chance Myers provided the Timbers all the offense it needed for a shutout win, earning a 1-0 victory at JELD-WEN Field. A physi-cal match that featured six combined yellow cards, Nagbe completed 26 of 30 passes while working with Jack Jewsbury and Diego Chara to distrupt Sporting Kansas City’s scorching start to the season. Sporting KC entered the match as the Eastern Conference’s top team with a 7-0-0 record, but the Timbers were able to snap Sporting’s early-season winning streak.

In Portland’s only other trip to Sporting Kansas City, midfielder Graham Zusi tallied a brace and forward Soony Saad scored on a deflected shot in a 3-1 win. Timbers forward Bright Dike registered his first career MLS goal in just his second-career game after recovering from a ruptured Achilles tendon in preseason training camp.

EARLY SEASON OFFENSEThe Timbers have scored 11 goals through their first seven games of the 2013 season, standing alone as the most scored by a Timbers MLS side through the opening seven games of a campaign. With the help of a 4-2 win in the first-ever home match at JELD-WEN Field on April 14, 2011, the Timbers scored 10 goals in the first seven games of the 2011 season. In 2012, Portland registered nine goals in the team’s first seven matches.

LAST TIME VS. SPORTING KCThe Timbers ended Sporting Kansas City’s seven-game winning streak with a 1-0 win at JELD-WEN Field. The Timbers capitalized on an own goal by Sporting KC defender Chance Myers and held one of MLS’s top-scoring clubs scoreless as they snapped their five-match winless stretch. Entering the match, Sporting KC had posted the second-longest winning streak to start a season in MLS his-tory at seven consecutive wins, but he Timbers’ defense limited Sporting KC to just two shots on goal and held the club scoreless for the first time in 2012. The Timbers took the lead in the 41st minute, when Myers knocked the ball into the back of his own net trying to clear away a cross by Timbers forward Kris Boyd.

TOE-TO-TOESporting Kansas City and the Timbers rank No. 1-2 in the league this season in consecutive minutes without allowing a goal.

MAINTAINING POSSESSION

PORTLAND TIMBERS AT SPORTING KANSAS CITYSATURDAY, APRIL 27, 2013

UNDEFEATED RUN, HOME AND AWAY UPCOMING MILESTONESGoalkeeper Donovan Ricketts is one win shy of his 50th career MLS victory. The Jamaican international recorded his 48th and 49th career wins during the Timbers current two-game winning streak, both of which were clean sheets. Ricketts ranks ninth all-time among active MLS goalkeepers in wins (49).

Third-year midfielder/forward Darlington Nagbe’s next goal will be the 10th of his MLS career. It would also put Nagbe into a tie with Jack Jewsbury as the club’s all-time career goal-scoring leader. Nagbe scored his ninth career goal with a rebound in the 56th minute against New York on March 3.

Team captain Will Johnson’s next assist will be the 10th of his career. Johnson earned the second assist on midfielder Diego Valeri’s first career MLS goal in a 3-3 draw with New York on March 3. The seven-year MLS veteran has registered an assist in each of his last five seasons.

Midfielder Kalif Alhassan’s next assist will be the 10th of his MLS career. Alhassan earned an assist in the season-opening 3-3 draw against New York on March 3. The Ghanaian earned a career-high six assists during the 2011 season.

Midfielder Jack Jewsbury’s next goal will be the 25th of his career. Jewsbury has started each of the last four games for the Timbers.

TIMBERS DRAW AGAINST ÕQUAKESOn April 21, the Timbers extended their unbeaten run to five games and remained unbeaten on the road this season, playing the San Jose Earthquakes to a 1-1 draw behind a goal from midfielder Diego Valeri at Buck Shaw Stadium. With the draw, the Timbers matched their MLS club record for their longest un-beaten streak at five games. Portland also matched their longest road unbeaten streak as an MLS side at four games, dating back to the 2012 season. The Timbers struck for the opening goal in the 58th minute, with Valeri finishing from close range after buildup through the Earthquakes’ defensive half. Portland’s defense held firm against San Jose’s attack throughout the match, allowing just five shots on goal and enduring nine corner kicks. But Earthquakes substitute Adam Jahn snuck in the equalizer in the second minute of second-half stoppage time to level the score at 1-1.

Following a 1-1 draw against San Jose on April 21 at Buck Shaw Stadium, the Timbers extended their current undefeated run to a club record-tying five games. The team’s previous five-game unbeaten stretch lasted from Aug. 20-Sept. 21, 2011 as Portland earned a 3-0-2 record, scoring seven goals and conceding two. The Timbers current streak began on March 16 with a 1-1 draw at Seattle and featured a come-from-behind 2-2 draw at Colorado (March 30), and back-to-back wins against Houston (April 6) and San Jose (April 14) at JELD-WEN Field. During the run, Portland has earned a 2-0-3 record while scor-ing seven goals and conceding four.

SCOUTING SPORTING KC

Eastern Conference-leading Sporting Kansas City saw its league-best, 546-minute streak without conceding a goal snapped on April 20 in a 2-0 loss to the LA Galaxy. Head coach Peter Vermes’ squad features Designated Player Claudio Bieler, an Argentinean forward who leads the team with four goals. U.S. National Team midfielder/forward Graham Zusi has contributed two goals and three assists this season, while goalkeeper Jimmy Nielsen has stonewalled the opposition allowing five goals in eight games for a 0.63 goals-against average. Last season, Sporting KC finished as the Eastern Conference’s top seed to the MLS Cup Playoffs and was just three points shy of San Jose for the Supporter’s Shield. The club ran into a determined Houston side in the Conference Semifi-nals and was bounced from the playoffs 2-1 on aggregate.

TIMBERS HOST MONARCAS JULY 3The Timbers will play host to Mexican club Monarcas Morelia in an international friendly July 3 at JELD-WEN Field at 8 p.m. (Pacific) in the Timbers’ inaugural “Copa Verde.” In “Copa Verde”, the Timbers have established a new annual friendly competition in which the club will face a first-division side from Mexico. Monarcas is 15 matches into the 2013 Clausura tournament and currently sits in fifth place in the Liga MX table with a record of 6-3-6 (24pts).

DOUBLE-DIGIT SHOTS AT HOMEPortland currently maintains a notable streak of 35 consecutive home games recording 10 or more shots, which is the second-longest active streak of its kind in the league behind only Sporting Kansas City’s 43 straight home games with 10 or more shots.

FAMILIAR FACESporting Kansas City forward Claudio Bieler and Timbers midfielder Diego Valeri have crossed paths before reaching MLS. Playing in Argentina’s Primera Di-visión, Valeri’s Club Atletico Lanús squared off against Bieler’s side Newell’s Old Boys in a league match on Feb. 2, 2011. Bieler tallied the opening goal, giving Newell’s Old Boys a 1-0 lead in the 48th minute, but Valeri netted the equalizer for Lanús in the 68th minute with a right-footed strike. Bieler and Newell’s Old Boys prevailed as the Sporting KC forward helped set up the game-winning goal in the 87th minute. Valeri was subbed out of the match in the 75th minute for defensive purposes after Lanús went down a man following a red-card ejection one minute earlier.

The Timbers are one of two teams this season to have maintained the majority of possession in every match. Through seven games, Portland has commanded the lion’s share of the ball with an average of 58.5 percent of possession. Along-side the Timbers, the only other side to have kept the majority of possession in every match this season is Real Salt Lake, which has earned an average of 55.5 percent of possession through eight games.

CAREER HIGHSTimbers midfielder Will Johnson equaled a career high with his third goal of the season in a 1-0 win on April 14 against San Jose. Johnson, who recorded career highs of three goals, three assists and nine points in 26 games last year for Real Salt Lake, is on the cusp of breaking his career highs in all three categories through just six matches this season. In 630 minutes of action, Johnson has registered three goals, one assist and seven points for Portland.

LAST ONE STANDINGThrough seven weeks of the MLS season, Portland is the only remaining team yet to suffer a loss on the road. In a departure from previous seasons, the Tim-bers have earned a share of the points in each of its first three road contests. Portland battled back for draws at Seattle (March 16) and Colorado (March 30), and recently earned a 1-1 draw at San Jose on April 21. Portland’s four goals on the road ranks second in the Western Conference, behind Chivas USA’s five goals in three road games.

SECOND-HALF DEFENSESaturday’s match features two of the league’s top teams in second-half defense. Portland ranks third overall, conceding just three goals in the second half of its seven matches this season. Sporting Kansas City and Seattle are tied for first in the league, conceding one goal in the second half of games this year.

OFF-SEASON TRANSACTIONS

TIMBERS U-18 ACADEMYWith two draws, the Timbers U-18 Academy is unbeaten in their last three matches. The Timbers U-18s played the Santa Cruz Breakers Academy to a 0-0 draw on April 20, with goalkeeper Collin Partee (Camas, Wash.) recording the team’s second shutout in four games. On April 21, the Timbers U-18s earned a 1-1 draw against the Force. Portland struck first on forward Spencer Kleweno’s (Portland, Ore.) first goal of the season, but De Anza was able to equalize on a penalty-kick goal. Midfielder Sam Werner (Bozeman, Mont.) had a quality look in the closing moments of the match miss just wide. The Timbers U-18s are 9-10-5 (32pts) on the season and are within reach of a wildcard playoff position in the U.S. Soccer Development Academy playoffs for their age group.

TIMBERS U-16 ACADEMYA two-goal performance from Reid Baez helped guide the Timbers U-16s to a 2-2 draw against the Breakers Academy on April 20. Baez tallied seven minutes apart in the 60th and 67th minutes, respectively, during a 14-minute stretch in which all four of the game’s goals were scored. Baez now has four goals on the season and sits among the team’s leading goal-scorers. The Timbers U-16s re-corded a 2-2 draw against De Anza on April 21. Portland built a two-goal lead on goals from Alex Segovia (Beaverton, Ore.) in the eighth minute and defender Niko De Vera (Washougal, Wash.) in the 46th minute. The first-place Force climbed back into the match, scoring in the 57th minute and found the equalizer from David Levitsky in the 77th minute. Portland’s Segovia has scored three goals over the last three games and leads the team with eight on the campaign. The Timbers U-16s are 10-6-7 (37pts) and hold onto a wildcard playoff berth in the U.S. Soccer Development Academy with their two results over the weekend.

The Timbers Academy teams have just four regular-season matches remaining on their 2012-13 schedule, and will visit the Washington Crossfire Premier on Saturday at Redmond High School in Redmond, Wash. The U-18 sides kickoff at 2 p.m., while the U-16 teams square off at 4:30 p.m. (Pacific).
